My Students

Our school welcomes students from various diverse backgrounds. Together, we form a community and classroom culture that cultivates the love for learning. Each day, students build on others' strengths and learn from one another. Working as a team to succeed, students continuously motivate and encourage their friends to reach their highest potential.

Each day, students enter my class ready to learn with smiles on their faces.

Their eagerness to read, learn, and apply their new knowledge makes my day and job that much more rewarding. I strive to provide the materials that each of them need to learn, grow, and develop into the most successful individuals they can possibly be.

My Project

My students LOVE to read new books! However, finding books at their reading level is often difficult and can be extremely pricey. We also create anchor charts with chart paper using colorful markers to remind students of reading strategies they can use.

Research shows that students who gradually progress through reading levels gain not only reading skills, but reading confidence as well.

Providing books that challenge students, yet motivate them to keep on reading is so important to help students gain a passion for reading! My goal is to provide students with a range of books within their reading level that they can both read and grow from. With these books, students within this reading level will be able to keep a minimum of three books in their book bags at all times! They would be so excited!
